A very talented mother.

Is your mother talented? Well... I don't mean to brag, but mine is pretty much the most talented one in the world. Not only is she super smart, but she can draw, sing, sew, do awesome web-design, paint glow-in-the-dark stars on ceilings, play the piano, plus she's a fabulous photographer, she's extremely creative, and I think that being generous and thoughtful are some pretty sweet talents she possesses, as well.

Just look what she made for our family for Christmas:

Made. Yes, made. Sewed. Stitched. Created. Collected little tiny ornaments over the last 4 years. It is the cutest advent calendar I have ever seen. And Kennedy had SO much fun every morning last month putting the new ornament on the tree. I show this off to everyone who comes in my house, and now I'm showing it off to you.

So... yeah, maybe I do mean to brag.

My mom is super talented.

That calender is so great. Fun and classy. I wish the ones we made for Sam, J'neil, Heather & Jamie were even half that nice. Allison is talented indeed. You are lucky to have such a great mother.

Try going to high school with her! I'm still in counseling trying to get over my low self esteem.

Love you allicat.

@Michelle- LOL. She probably feels the exact same way about you. :)

Ashley what a sweet post. I loved making that for you and am so delighted that you love it - and that Kennedy had so much fun.

What ended up being her favorite ornament?

Michelle - you are too funny. You have talents galore yourself - plus you make me laugh harder than anyone. And just so you know, I'm currently in counseling about how you look just the same as you did in high school and I look like a grandma.

Ashley Rae said...

Actually, mom, she was really excited about every ornament she put on the tree. I will have to ask which one was her favorite. I know she loved the pine cone with the chickadee on it :)

Ashley Rae said...

Oh- and seriously, Michelle- I hope I look even 1/10 as good as you do when I'm ... your age... :)

Michelle said...
